A brilliant and young African Mathematician has set a record after bagging his Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from the University of Mines and Technology, Tarkwa, Ghana at the age of 25.

The young man named Abdulzeid Yen Anafo studied his undergraduate program at the University of Development Studies (UDS), Ghana where he graduated at the age of 20 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Pure Mathematics.

Celebrating his feat on Linkedin, Abdulzeid says he is grateful to God and the Professors who supervised his research throughout his academic journey.

Before enrolling for Ph.D. at the University of Mines and Technology, Abdulzeid had gone for his Master’s degree at the prestigious African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS).
